AllMusic Review by

This wonderful two-disc collection of modern blues classics from Madacy Records kicks things off with Big Mama Thornton's "Hound Dog," follows it with "Dust My Broom" by Elmore James, and then never looks back, commencing a tour of historical cornerstones for electric blues that includes Bobby Blands "Farther up the Road," Guitar Slim's "The Things That I Used to Do," Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love," Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee," and Otis Rush's "I Can't Quit You Baby." Every track here is a classic, and at a budget price, this is a great purchase.
